SUMMARY
 
     
          As designed, the vessels of this type carried a dinghy and a collapsible rubber boat.  The dinghy was put ashore during war, and nothing is known of its characteristics.  
          The collapsible boat was of the familiar type, inflated by means of compressed air.  Several have been forwarded to the Bureau of Ships for exploitation.  
          The dinghy was stowed in the superstructure, and the rubber boat in a pressure-proof tank on deck.
